Posted by & filed under Blogathon 2009, Catherine, Cute.

Want. Seriously. I spent so much time playing Lemmings when I was younger. What an awesome game. June of PlanetJune has included crochet patterns and suggestions for accessories on her blog. And to crocheters out there: what better than crocheted Lemmings to go with my Weighted Companion Cube? I mean, really. (Via jwz.)

I bought the frame separately, though it… Read more »

Blogathon 2009: Refueling

Ahh, delicious, delicious food. Courteously donated by Dairy Queen, as it happens. They just delivered it so we’re currently all chowing down. A few people here raised the point earlier that 6am-6am is a pretty difficult schedule to keep, and I definitely agree with that. I usually like to eat lunch 3–4 hours after waking… Read more »
